The Shady Side Of Stacey Dash

Stacey Dash confused the world when she showed up at the 2016 Oscars during Chris Rock's monologue. The comedian presented her as the leader of Hollywood's "Minority Outreach Program," at which point the stunner (seriously, how is she 49?) made an awkward joke. "I cannot wait to help my people out. Happy Black History Month," she chuckled. "Thank you." Of course, this is the same Stacey Dash who wants to ban Black History Month and who doesn't see the big deal about #OscarsSoWhite. In fact, she has a history of pretty shady behavior that may explain her presence on Hollywood's biggest night.

She shaded the Carters

In 2013, Dash took issue with Beyonce and Jay Z's vacation to Cuba, tweeting, "Do you care that the Jay Z's have taken the capital you've given them and funded a communist oppressive regime?" What?

She doesn't think a wage gap exists

When Patricia Arquette gave a moving speech on pay equality at the 2015 Oscars, Dash was, well, unmoved. "[I was] appalled," she said. "I didn't get the memo that I didn't have any rights...Be a better negotiator."

She came at BET

Dash claimed that BET, who once employed her on The Game, promotes racial divisiveness. She wrote in a January 2016 blog, "If we don't want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the [NAACP] Image Awards, where you're only rewarded if you're black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms." When several fans pointed out that she was on The Game, she added, "I'm thankful for all of the acting jobs I had, but I look forward to the day when people don't self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society." She continued by saying BET lies to the black community to make them believe the rest of America is racist, concluding with, "And they're absolutely mortified that someone like me—an independent-thinking black woman—dares call their bluff."

She claims minorities hold themselves back

During a Fox News rant in 2014, Dash spewed, "[Minorities] feel worthless. They're uneducated. I mean, as long as you are that way, [Democrats] can keep you under their control."

She supported Paula Deen

When Paula Deen was busted for making racist comments in 2013, Dash was quick to defend her. "God does everything for a reason, Paula Deen," she tweeted. "Only God can judge your heart. BTW, my daughter loves your show."

She dissed Oprah

Dash came for the queen of everything herself, Oprah Winfrey, in August 2013. When Winfrey compared the death of Trayvon Martin with that of Emmett Till, Dash tweeted, "Shame on you, Oprah," followed by the Malcolm X quote, "If you aren't careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing."

She has a potty mouth

In December 2015, Dash was suspended from Fox News for using profanity to insult President Barack Obama. When asked about his State of the Union address, Dash griped, "I did not feel any better. I didn't feel any passion from him. I felt like he could give a s***—excuse me, like he could care less."
